Spring 2017 Meeting Time: Fridays 5:00 PM in BLB060

We are a group of students at the University of North Texas in Denton. We focus on educating ourselves and others about the four fields of anthropology, and how they are relevant to our daily lives.
We spend our time giving back to our community (on and off campus), holding events for fellow students, and exploring new ways to have fun.

If you're at UNT, feel free to come hangout! All Anthro majors, minors, and enthusiasts are welcome. :)
Feel free to email us with any comments or questions - anthropeopleunt@gmail.com

Wanna Talk Superheroes?

Happy (rainy) Tuesday, readers! I have an exciting opportunity to introduce to you all.

Our amazing VP of Community Service and Outreach, Jena Chakour, is working on her honors thesis this semester and needs our help! If you would be interested in contributing to her research by discussing your opinion of superheroes with her, please reach out to her and let her know! It doesn't matter if you're a SUPER fan or didn't even know there was a difference between Marvel and D.C., all knowledge-level volunteers are welcome. See the flyer below for more details.

All students interested can contact Jena at her email address, ginachakour@my.unt.edu, or via text message at 940.312.9952.

Updates for the week of 11/07

Hey Anthros! There's quite a bit going on with the ASA this week so here's the info!

First on the agenda... This week is our second special event of the semester called Meet An Anthropologist. We will have a few guest speakers from the anthropology department come in to talk to us about their careers. This is an incredible opportunity for exposure to different career options in the social sciences, so don't miss out! Come hang with us in BLB035 at 5 pm. The officers will provide tacos so enjoy free food while you listen to our amazing panel of guest speakers! See the flyer below for details.

Next, as many of you already know, the Anthropology Department was chosen to represent the UNT Food Pantry for the month of November. The UNT Food Pantry was established by the Dean of Students to help combat hunger and address food insecurity in students. Help us collect items for the pantry, whose cause is extremely important! The graduate and undergraduate students are competing to collect the most food, and right now we are neck-and-neck. The ASA officers went out this weekend and purchased $100 worth of food to help stock the pantry and defeat the grad students. 

Current Graduate Donations on Top, Current Undergraduate Donations on Bottom

Any and every donation helps, guys! Even if all you can bring is one canned good or a single pack of instant rice. The pantry accepts canned chicken or tuna, peanut butter, low-sodium canned vegetables, low-sugar canned fruit, popcorn, soup, instant rice, beans, chili, pasta sides, nuts, mashed potatoes, fruit snacks, granola bars, boxed cereal, oatmeal, crackers, pudding, toothpaste, tooth brushes, and feminine hygiene products. Donate to our box in the department, or bring your contributions to the ASA meetings for your officers to deliver them for you. We'll have a donation box at all meetings between now and when the CONTEST ENDS ON DECEMBER 2ND. Winners get a pizza party, complementary of the department! 

Lastly, the ASA now has a GroupMe for all of our organization's updates! Please send your phone number to our VP of Public Relations, Bethany Trent, via email at bethany.trent94@gmail.com or over Facebook messenger to have your number added into our GroupMe account. For any questions, as always please feel free to email us at anthropeopleunt@gmail.com
